I was just on the can, and I have to post in a conspicuous place all the Federal Equal Opportunity in Employment laws.

Am I the only one that finds it odd that you can't discriminate against someone in employment based on where they were born, yet we still require the President to be born here?

I know the kneejerk reaction is to say this IS a bonafide occupational qualification.

Is it?

Commando is the governor of the state of California. Last I checked, that is a really big state with a lot of economic clout. Pretty heavily armed. You know, all the stuff people are afraid of?
Is it because we think Alqueder will get us a Manchurian candidate?

I find it funny that my wife can't be President, but I could be. She'd be WAY better than me.

Dunno. I'm just thinking out loud since the gubmint makes such a big deal about race, sex, color, religion, national origin, protected veterans, etc. for gubmint contracts and jobs, yet one of those categories can't hold the highest gubmint office.

Just thinking.

While I was crapping.

I'd imagine the requirement came out of someone thinking that if things got bad in post Revolution America, people might elect the English King President or something.

your wife has incredibly horrible taste in men. The public takes one look at you and she wouldn't make it past Iowa.
